Bright Sea


Here I wait

on you, captain

in patience.


Attempting to erase me

will cost

you, gently.


My friends slip

through every crevice;

My thoughts as silk

search you.


A sweet whisper

will undo

your reality,

cupped so secretly

in your hands.


Every pretend

must end—

this one

is not exempt.


Retie the knots

you set loose.


I will untie you

with forgiveness.
